Martine is a genetically cloned replica made from Evelyn Caldwell’s award-winning research. She’s patient and gentle and obedient. She’s everything Evelyn swore she’d never be. And she’s having an affair with Evelyn’s husband.
Now, the cheating bastard is dead, and the Caldwell wives have a mess to clean up. Good thing Evelyn Caldwell is used to getting her hands dirty.
Every now and then I agree to review a book like The Echo Wife by Sarah Gailey that is so far outside my reading comfort zone because I know the author is just fantastic. I loved Sarah Gailey’s Magic For Liars and figured that while I may not love this book as much I would still enjoy it. Happily, I can say that that was definitely the case here! While The Echo Wife has a science fiction aspect to it, it’s pretty much just a straight-up thriller and I loved it from beginning to end.
There was a lot that I enjoyed about this book, from its kind of ridiculous premise to its amazing cast of characters, but I think what really stood out about it to me was how unpredictable the story was. I feel like every time I was sure I knew exactly what was going on and what was going to happen next Sarah Gailey managed to take the story down a path that I just did not see coming at all. I was up all night reading this book because I needed to know what was going to happen next and to find out if my theories on what was going on was true or not (They never were).
I’m so glad I decided to read this book and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to everyone I know. I think there’s something in it for everyone to love no matter what genre they normally read. Sarah Gailey has once again proven what a great author she is and I know I at least will be reading everything else she releases from this point forward.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
